APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When you use the Process Admin Console to create a user, the
    Full Name property that you defined for the user is not
    available for later processing and display. For instance, when a
    user logs in to Process Portal, <null> is displayed as the
    user's name instead of the user's full name.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • Before IBM BPM V8.5, users that were created in the Process
    Admin Console were stored in an internal module
    (BPMInternalSecurityProvider). This module implements the
    WebSphere Application Server User Registry (UR) interface to
    access user information. By definition, the WebSphere
    Application Server UR interface mandates that the displayName
    property must be used to get a user's full name property from
    the WebSphere Application Server UR. This property is currently
    not requested in federated repositories searches that IBM BPM
    triggers to retrieve user details. Therefore, the full name
    property is neither retrieved nor stored for users that are
    created in the Process Admin Console.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.0.1.2. that ensures that all
    search queries that federated repositories.request or run also
    request the displayName property.
